Finance Priorities

As stewards of the university’s resources, the finance team focuses on the following.

  • Assess efficiency across all administrative functions by developing a comprehensive benchmarking regime
  • Ensure the availability of robust financial resources by continued expenditure control, revenue diversification, and endowment and investment maximization
  • Facilitate and implement recommendations that will engineer Temple's shift to a more customer-centric culture aligned with solutions-focused processes
  • Monitor Temple Health finances and operations; advise the president and board on risk and exposure for the university
  • Oversee the complex financial affairs for the university budget including responsibility for a myriad of internal controls and external reporting requirements
  • Provide leadership and support for all aspects of Temple's Responsibility Center Management model since its implementation in FY 2015
  • Safeguard the viability of future strategic investment by protecting and enhancing Temple’s balance sheet and growing the more than $2 billion in university assets
  • Support strong student demand and revenue growth by aligning resources with priorities and opportunities and ensuring capital projects are on schedule with a viable financial plan
